Andres Merino-Viteri - Ecuador
As part of my researcher and lecturer job at Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Ecuador, I am in charge of one of the oldest and largest amphibian conservation facilities in Ecuador. Our center keeps over 40 species of ambibians, so our skills include fieldwork, in situ and ex situ research, and husbandry, that we are very open to share with colleagues.
